For the first time in Dubai we will present the infamous portrait Picasso & Francoise Gillot, Golfe Juan, 1949 by Robert Capa. This is a beautiful, whimsical portrait of Picasso and Francoise Gillot walking on a beach in France. Capa portrays them with levity and rich tonal ranges, making them as alive in the photograph as they were in France in 1948.
The amazing pictures Sahara, Algeria, 2009 and Dinka Cattle Camp, Southern Soudan-2006 by Sebastiao Salgado belong to a project named Genesis that he began in 2004, aiming at the presentation of the unblemished faces of nature and humanity. It consists of a series of photograhs of landscapes and wildlife, as well as human communities that continue to live in accordance with their ancestral traditions and cultures. This body of work is conceived as a potential path to humanity’s rediscovery of itself in nature.
The charismatic French artist, Gerard Pairé, first exhibition in U.A.E. has been able to capture « les etincelles du hasard » (the sparkles of fortune) of painting because his photographs have been elaborated from workshop’s shots (dots, drops, painted floor,splashing of colors…). The Unique pieces on Argentic paper in this exhibition have an addition of transparent Polymere Painting.
